Pregnant? Need Help?

Walking with Moms In Need

Help Before and After Your Baby is Born!

Walking with Moms in Need is a joint ministry of St Julie and St Peter parishes, located in North Ridgeville. Volunteers from these parishes have joined together to aid pregnant and parenting women, without regard to race, color, national origin, age, marital status, or religious affiliations.

Volunteers walk with moms throughout the motherhood journey offering them authentic Christian friendship and ongoing support. Please call or TEXT 440-662-9068 or email wwminsjbsp@gmail.com to be connected with someone ready to accompany you, and help you find the resources you may need.

An Inventory of Local Pregnancy Help and Family Assistance for women raising children.

Pregnant and parenting moms-in-need are in our parishes and our neighborhoods. As Pope Francis reminds us, our parishes need to be “Islands of mercy in the midst of the sea of indifference.” Using these resources, everyone in our parish community can help a pregnant or parenting woman get the support she needs.  We hope to move closer to the day when every mother in need knows where to turn for help.
